Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 437 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

At this point, Idris Elba probably doesn’t even want to play James Bond. With a year of speculation, Elba has continuously denied even being in the running, but now the author of the most recent Bond book, Trigger Mortis, really stuck his foot in his mouth.

Anthony Horowitz, in an interview with the Daily Mail, didn’t give Elba a thumbs up approval for the role. Horowitz seems to think Elba is too rough to play the part, even though he called him a terrific actor.

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better," he said.

"For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah."

Wait.

So Horowitz, doesn’t think Elba isn’t Suave? He thinks he's 'too street'. Is that code for 'too black'? Horowitz isn’t the ‘suave’ one according to Twitter:

A Los Angeles judge has overturned the divorce settlement Terrence Howard reached with his second wife after finding the actor signed the 2012 agreement under duress.

Howard’s ex was no Cookie Lyon, but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis said she was manipulative enough to scare him into thinking she would leak private details about him, including phone sex recordings with other women and a video of the actor dancing naked in a bathroom.

"The evidence of extortion or duress was unrebutted," Lewis said in his ruling.

The ruling means Howard and his ex-wife Michelle Ghent, will have to negotiate a new financial agreement.

The “Empire” star tearfully testified about Ghent’s threats during a recent hearing.

Lewis did not hear from Ghent because her attorneys did not submit a sworn statement from her in advance of the hearing.

The agreement entitled Ghent to a share of Howard's earnings, which would have included a portion of his salary from the hit Fox series "Empire," which opens its second season in the fall.

Ghent's lawyers have said she denied extorting the actor in a deposition and argued he didn't prove threats she made in 2011 forced him to sign the agreement a year later.

At least one family-law attorney was surprised by the judge's ruling.

“If the fear of embarrassment is enough to claim you don’t have to honor a contract, then the integrity of contracts has officially been lowered to less than a handshake,” said Michael Stutman, head of family law at Mischon de Reya New York.

“Claiming you don’t have to honor a signed divorce agreement because you were fearing embarrassment is a cop-out excuse to not fulfill your obligations, and I’m shocked the courts have ruled in his favor.”

Lewis presided over a four-day hearing that revealed numerous private details about the Oscar-nominated actor, including that he had cheated on Ghent during their engagement, he was physically violent with his first wife, and he has already divorced his third wife.

Howard, 46, has denied any physical abuse.

Lewis also heard a 2011 call in which Ghent berated Howard and threatened to sell private information about him if he didn't pay her money by the end of the day. Howard's accountant sent Ghent $40,000 in response to the call, which he called "hush money."

The actor was nominated for an Academy Award for his starring role in 2005's Hustle & Flow.

His career has surged since the debut of “Empire,” in which he plays Lucious Lyon, the head of a family hip-hop empire.

Wiz Khalifa got handcuffed on Saturday afternoon at Los Angeles International Airport because he wouldn’t get off his hoverboard, the rapper said on social media.

Several U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers apparently threw Khalifa, 27, to the ground at around 4 p.m. a video posted to his Instagram feedshows.

“Get on the ground,” one of the officers said in the video. “Stop resisting.” The dreadlocked Khalifa allowed the officers to handcuff him in the short video. “I’m not resisting, sir,” he said several times.

The rapper took a flight to L.A. on Saturday after stays in France and Finland, he wrote on Twitter earlier in the day. He told fans the interaction with cops was “all because I didn't want to ditch the (technology) everyone will be using in the next 6 months.”

He said in a later Tweet, “I stand for our generation and our generation is gonna be riding hover boards so if you don't like it eat a d---!”

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Khalifa was arrested. Representatives for his record label didn't immediately respond to a request for more information early Sunday. A spokeswoman for LAX also didn't immediately respond to a request for official confirmation of the incident.

But the Los Angeles Airport Police had no interaction with Khalifa on Saturday, Officer Alicia Hernandez told the Daily News. The officers in the video appear to be CBP officers, she said.

A CBP spokesman declined to discuss any specific cases, citing privacy rules in an email. But the spokesman did outline the agency's protocol for airport customs areas.

"All travelers arriving into the U.S. are subject to CBP inspection, and for their own safety and the safety of other passengers, must follow officers’ instructions while in the federal inspection service area," he said. "CBP officers are conducting their critical national security mission while facilitating the entry of legitimate travelers. An uncompliant passenger or any disruptive behavior could put many at risk at this highly secure area."

Khalifa spoke with the officers as people stood in line behind him in a video on his Twitter feed. The video was filmed one minute before he was thrown to the ground, according to its timestamp.

“I didn’t do nothing, anyway,” he told the officers. “What you want to do? Put me in jail because I didn’t listen to what you say? We can have all the conversations you want to, you can end up on TMZ, destined to become as famous as you wanna be.”

Tracy Morgan has married his fiancee of four years.

According to the 46-year-old actor-comedian's publicist, Lewis Key, Morgan wed Megan Wollover on Sunday

Their 2-year-old daughter was in attendance. It is Morgan's second marriage.

The ceremony came 14 months after the June 2014 crash that seriously injured Morgan and killed a fellow comedian when their limousine was struck by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The former "30 Rock" star has mostly been out of sight since the crash as he recuperated from his injuries. But NBC recently announced that on Oct. 17 he will guest host "Saturday Night Live," where he was a cast member from 1996-2003.

Dr. Dre has issued an apology in response to the growing controversy over his hit film "Straight Outta Compton."

While the N.W.A. biopic has been a box office success, it has also received backlash for failing to acknowledge Dre's history of violence against women.

The growing outcry over the film's omission of the alleged incidents led the 50-year-old rapper to address the uproar.
“Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life,” he said Friday in a statement to the New York Times.

“However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.”

“I apologize to the women I’ve hurt,” he added. “I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.”

The allegations against the 50-year-old rapper have been brought to the forefront because of the success of the biopic, which Dre executive produced.

Since the movie’s release, hip-hop journalist Dee Barnes and Dre’s ex-fiancée Michel’le have decried how “Compton” omits Dre's violent acts against them and other women, with Barnes slamming the film in a Gawker essay as “revisionist history.”

The backlash gained momentum after it was reported that Barnes’ assault was cut out of the original script.

The outcry over “Compton” even compelled Apple, where Dre works as a consultant after selling Beats Entertainment to the tech company, to also issue a statement to the Times.

“Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago.

"We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

Columbus Short's long night behind bars was the product of a “financial misunderstanding” with his bail bond company, his lawyer told the Daily News Wednesday.

It wasn't because the former “Scandal” star reportedly angered a judge with another missed court appearance, lawyer Ludlow B. Creary said.

Creary spoke up after Short was publicly apprehended by bounty hunters Tuesday night during a music release party at Infusion Lounge on the CityWalk at Universal Studios.

The actor and musician was placed under citizen's arrest and later handed over to the Los Angeles County Sheriff for booking early Wednesday, online jail records show.

“He was not picked up on a new warrant. It was not initiated by the court. That’s why it was a bounty hunter and not police. I believe it was just a financial misunderstanding between him and his bail bondsperson,” Creary told The News Wednesday afternoon.

“It’s being cleared up as we speak. We’re hopeful he’ll be out of custody tonight,” the lawyer said.

“Mr. Short was in good standing with the court when he was picked up. It’s really just between him and his bail bondsman,” Creary added.

A law enforcement source said it appeared Short still owed money to the company that posted the bond in his pending felony assault case.

The company apparently lost its patience and wanted him hauled in, the source said.

A hearing on the dispute was set for Los Angeles County Superior Court Thursday morning, multiple sources confirmed to The News.

Video of the bounty hunters posted on TMZ.com revealed that Short was fearful and confused when the men moved in to apprehend him.

“I thought you were about to fight me,” Short told one of the bounty hunters on the TMZ video.

“I didn’t see your badge, I swear. You scared me,” he said. “Your tattoos…you scared me.”

The "Stomp the Yard" actor's felony assault case stems from a fight with a man outside Gabe's Bar and Grill in Los Angeles last year.

Alleged victim Felton Hyche III claimed Short “viciously lunged” at him after they had a verbal disagreement outside an engagement party at the restaurant.

“We are still in a position where my client is fighting these allegations,” Creary told The News on Wednesday. “And my client maintains his innocence.”

Short previously pleaded no contest to misdemeanor spousal battery.

The boys from Compton smashed opening weekend expectations, while the stylish "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." struggled to find its footing.

Universal's N.W.A. biopic earned an astonishing $56.1 million in its debut, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Director F. Gary Gray's film charts the formation and rise of the influential rap group. It cost just $29 million to produce.

N.W.A. members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube served as producers on the film, which has Ice Cube's real son O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing his father.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. PG-13-rated adaptation of the 1960s television series "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." debuted in third place, behind "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," with a sluggish $13.5 million. The period spy thriller will have an uphill battle to make up its $80 million production budget.

"Empire" star Terrence Howard is scheduled to return to a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday for the continuation of a hearing to try to undo a settlement in his most-recent divorce.

Howard claims ex-wife Michelle Ghent extorted him to sign a 2012 agreement that gave her to spousal support and other financial benefits. The Oscar-nominated actor claims Ghent threatened to leak personal information, including images of him naked and a sex tape, if he didn't meet her terms.

Ghent's lawyers say she denied blackmailing her husband during a deposition.

Howard, who currently stars on Fox's hit series "Empire," is expected to testify at some point during the hearing.

Audio of Ghent berating Howard and threatening to sell a video of him dancing naked in the bathroom was played for a judge on Tuesday.
